About this website
lamiinae.org is present on Web for 18 years
Lamiaires du Monde, Lamiines of the World
The website focuses exclusively on Lamiinae also called lamiines or flat-faced longhorned beetles.
Lamiaires du Monde is the french name of the original version, and Lamiines of the World, its translation.
It is the result of the author's work over the past 26 years to build an IT solution, update the database, enrich the content of pages and improve the services provided.
Jean-Philippe Roguet, 62 years old, architect of information system and their IT solutions, living near Paris, interested in entomology for 46 years, the last 34 years dedicated to the group of flat-faced longhorned beetles.
At first I created the entomological database management system in 1996 to compile a comprehensive catalog of Lamiines. The graph theory inspired me algorithms to build the tree of the valid group combinations, to infer systematic catalog and faunistic catalogs from nomenclatural events and other information (e.g. localities) found in the bibliography.
Then I created the website in 2004 to share the results of this heavy work. Pages and services are based on some of tools developed to support my operational activities related to collection and bibliography, of course to search for information but also to prepare entomological expeditions, facilitate determination with bestiaries, implemented keys or even derived in regional subkeys.
To photograph and illustrate the website, I use Nikon D7500 on reproduction stand, AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f / 2.8, Helicon software, Photoshop software and some PHP modules to generate and integrate the images.
My permanent concern is the continuous enrichment of the website to constitute a useful and pleasant reference for all the visitors.

Please do not use from Pinterest the photos looted in the gallery. Their sources are not even mentioned. They were copied illegally by unscrupulous people and disrespected for hundreds of hours of work that were needed to produce them.
Thank you to respect work. For example with photos, each illustration required to
- obtain entomological material
- prepare meticulously the specimens
- take several shots of the most representative one and combine the stack into focused image with Helicon software
- edit images with Photoshop
- integrate images in gallery and publish the pictured pages online
The agreement to reproduce some photos has been given to
- Larry G. Bezark for his website A Photographic Catalog of the CERAMBYCIDAE of the World
- Eugenio H. Nearns for his website cerambycids.com
- Eric Jiroux for Les Cahiers Magellanes
Links and favorites
There are many websites on longhorned beetles today.
The links page named Cerambycoidea ring (www.cerambycoidea.com) lists most of them.
For example, some representative websites on their perimeter
- Cerambycoidea.com is also interesting for its forum, its gallery and its digital library
- Bezbycids.com has a very useful gallery to determine the longhorned beetle
- BioLib provides an updated list of taxa very useful
- Titan database gives bibliographical references of taxa and museums keeping the types
